Just Bought 2600K and MSI P67A-GD65 - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Thread Starter 
On the MSI P67A-GD65, can I run the GTX 480 at x16 and the 9500gt at say, x1a? If I would have to go x8 x8, would it still be beneficial to use a PhysX card, if it forces the GTX 480 to run in x8 mode instead of x16 without the PhysX?

Also, will the fact that there are only 6 Phases on the MSI P67A-GD65 affect my overclocking? Basically what I mean to say is that are they good phases?, effectively reducing the phases needed to regulate power to the CPU. Or are they just 6 not so good phases?

i do not know why they cheap out on the phases when bigbang marshall has like 24 and GD85 has at least 2x more phases.

Comparing only the number of phases is unfair, though. Each phase from this motherboard switches at a higher frequency (1 MHz instead of 250 kHz) and has a lower switching loss, resulting in a higher efficiency and lower operating temperature. This is achieved by using an integrated circuit (Renesas R2J20652, click here for a detailed description and here for its datasheet) called DrMOS instead of discrete transistors. According to MSI each DrMOS phase is equivalent of four regular phases, so the “6+1” configuration used by this motherboard is comparable to a “20+4” configuration using the standard voltage regulator architecture used by competing products.

Just in!

how do you explain why big bang Marshall has like 24 phases? so according to your argument it's 96 normal phases lol?

not complaining about MSI product just saying they should of add a bit more ICs for these mainstream boards, since their flagship and high end boards has significantly more phases added.

UD3 has 12
UD5 has 20
UD7 has 24

GD65 6
GD85 forgot
BBM has 24 or more , 4x more than GD65

btw gigabyte has Dr.Mos too, they just don't call it that, according to your source then gigabyte UD3 has 48 phases!?

Just saying, it's not like you need that many phases, i just wish they added more ICs on their GD55 and GD65, i was gonna buy MSI board but i feel cheapen out after seening GD85 and BBM at MOA

I'm not trying to brag or compare, just saying that my 6 phases don't compare to 6 phases on, say, and AMD board. If the Big Bang Marshall has the same kind of phases as the GD65 it will be a beast monster, not just a beast or a monster.

At least that's how it's suppose to be for GD65.

1156 bracket should fit 1155. Someone else got a 1156 bracket to fit with their Apogee XT without any problems.
